Where should an MLS club find talent?

MLS teams have limited resources. They can't scout the entire world, and there are rules concerning the number of "international" players that a team can have (8 of 24), so yes most of their effort should be focused on US players, either through the draft, the USL systems or the Academies, but if you knew that an established MLS team could only focus on four areas for its scouting, where would you want that team to focus?

Basically which areas would enable a club to find the 5-9 players of turnover that happen in a given year?

Which of these do you think is most probable for Sounders to find a starter for next years club?
